Cellulose

What is Cellulose Fiber?

Natural celulose fibers are fibers that are still recognizable as being from a part of the original plant because they are only processed as much as needded to clean the fibers for use. For example, cotton fibers look like the soft fluffy cotton balls that they come from. Linen fibers look like the strong fiberous strands of the flax plant. All "natural" fibers go through a process where they are separated from the parts of the plant that are not used for the end product, usually through harvesting, separating from chaff, scouring, etc.

Manufactured cellulose fibers come from plans that are processed into a plup and then extruded in the same ways that synthetic fibers like polyester or nylon are made. Rayon or viscose is one of the most commo "manufactured" cellulose fibers.
